You may use Flashlight removers, but if the map’s difficulty is higher than 7 stars (after mods, so if it’s 6 stars no mod, and you apply +HDDT and it becomes 8 stars, then it’s not allowed.) If that’s the case you are required to liveplay the play with Flashlight. NOW, FL is not allowed even if there’s a score on top 50 FL score on that map (Bancho) If you’re unsure, then ask a Moderator.


Multiple Cheats:

You can’t now have more than ONE cheat instance/client open at the same time,this ALSO applies to combining cheats together, if you get caught doing so you will end up getting banned. The only exception for this rule is combining osu!rx (V1 or V2) with Kat’s AA/any kind of Aim assist that doesn’t have timewarp & relax.

Unfair hacks

Unfair hacks such as replaybots (and replay editing, by extension), score modifiers, OD changers, spinbots, autobots (includes all forms of auto,cursordance bots too), cheats that modify the score’s replay data (e.g. tap data or aim data, or playing with the in-game Relax mod, then removing it on submission) and score editors are NOT allowed, this rule may be enforced outside of the examples given. It is discretionary.

CS modifiers:

Circle Size changers are allowed, but with the following rules: For no-mod plays: default CS - 1 (eg. CS4 -> CS3); For HR plays: default CS - 0.77 (eg. CS4 -> CS3.23); For EZ plays: default CS - 2 (eg. CS4 -> CS2).

These values must be applied to the map’s default CS with NO MODS ENABLED. To check the CS, turn off your CS changer, reload the map and check in the top left corner where it says “CS: xxx AR: xxx OD: xxx”

Other Important Notes:

For Ainu users, make sure the client you use was downloaded on MPGH, the Discord server or the Ainu Xheaters Discord server, otherwise it contains prohibited features.

Things as: Relax hacks, AR changers, Enlighten (Un-HD), and other stuff that wasn’t listed in the hacking rules ARE ALLOWED. You can also ask one of the staff members if you still need clarification.

Moderation policy

Unlike other infractions, we have a fixed moderation policy for hacking rules. If you get caught breaking any of the Hacking Rules, it will result in a wipe of your account’s scores if you cannot prove you weren’t breaking the rules.

After 3 wipes, your account will be BANNED, not restricted. This means we’ll never ban someone at their first wipe, other than for the AC rule and Multiple cheat client’s rules.

You may appeal 1 month after your restriction unless you judge you haven’t been restricted for a legitimate reason.

If you want to appeal, you may email us at or Join our Discord and either open a ticket at #support-tickets or send a DM to any member of the support team.
